A Sl-SltU BV THE LITE PRESIDENT LINCOLN.
In the cour.-e of a speech at a political
niccting tu Philadelphia, on sent, 18, Mr.
Km v read a speech which be said was
inhcTr by President Loncoln in lt64, and
which bud never before been published The
ciicuimtanccs, as be narrated them, were
that early in ISol a committee waited, upon
Mr. Lino-In for tbc purjose ol presenting to
lum certain resolutions winch naa been
unanimously adopted by the Union League
ot Philadelphia demanding at tin- bands ol
the national convention his re-nuinination
lor the Presidency. The tjieech of Mr. I.in-
ooln, Mr. rorney said, was taken down ry
the reporter in lull, but never putiiistica.
11c said :
I suppose that all men are more or less selfish,
and I do not suppose that I am an exception to
the rule. I very freely acknowledge that this
manifestation of which 1 beam some tunc ago
and which is now formally presented to me of
tne confiJence or the Union League oi rmiaaei
phia is very grateful to my feelings. If it should
extend to the presentation of what is similar to
it by the whole nation, it would, by its compar
atively greater sue, be still more grateful o my
feelings. When this is said, so far as personal
and selfish considerations are concerned, all is
said that is pleasant to me in the light uf bring
here four years more. It is a situation which
has been to me one of painful anxiety and toil.
far beyond anything 1 had ever before conceived
Having said this much in regard to the mere
selhehness or the matter, I will state tirteny
what I suppose to be the duty of every true a
in the country, myself included, and that it to
do whatever he can that will best advance the
creat cause of saving our country.
Now, I s'jall shrink from nothing that shall
appear to me to be required for thit object.
shall tiothrink from another man's nomination
for the Presidency with any creater hesitation
than I would from my cwn. If it shall be made
to appear m any way that the elements upon
which the salvation of the country is to depend
can be better combined br dismissing me, the
country can have so difEculty in getting rid of
me. On the contrary, I suppose I need not
hesitate to say here, that if it shall appear that
the best way of concentrating and consolidating
that force upon the salvation of the country, e to
depend on using me further, 1 can say l do not
thrmt from it. .Now, 1 do not know that it is
best to publish this; but, after what has been
said to me, I could not avoid making it public
It is easy to mifconstrue. It is eisy to say I am
in the field openly Csr the Presidency canvass
ing for it. I Lope I am not. I do not think it
is good for the country that it should be so con
strued and understood. I am sure here to-night,
in the presence of you gentlemen and the Al
mighty, that there is no one act that I am con
scious cf having done that looked to this end tor
myself that looked to any personaknd. I
think a man should, in times like these, so keep
himself as to l conscious that whatever he has
done in this high position, and especially in
these extraordinarily difficult times, he has done
only for the good cf the country.
ExrrCTtD Showek oi Meteors. Many ol
our readers will reincmber-the " Star Show
er " of li-33 as the most remarkable pheno
menon they I-avc ctcr witnessed, and all will
be interested in the statement that scientific
men consider it prouaMc ilmt '.uti,
pla will occur about the 13th of this month
pcruaps a uay earner or jaier.
The appearance oi meteors or " shooting
stars " is quite common, but in August ana
November of each year tuey are more fre
quent, especially from the 10th to the 14th
of these months. Astronomer have learned
that, at intervals or about S3 years, these
meteors may be looked for in unusually large
numbers. For several centuries these mete
oric showers have occurred with some regu
larity tbc last in 1833, tbc one preceding
this ic 17'J'J.
The shower of 1S33 occasioned much
alarm among many persons. The supposi
tion that tbc "wotld was coming to an end"
was Dot uncommon. Much that was ludi
crous was connected with t jis fright, yet it
is not remarkable that the eight ol couil-
less meteors bhould occasion alarm, especial
ly among these who bad heard nothing of
tbc expectation ol tbc phenomenon.
The objervations ol astronomers hate de
monstrated that tbc shooting stare are mure
numerous between midnight and sunrioc, and
the nisjority of thcra agree in fixing tbc ra
diant point that point in which the lines
described by tbc meteors in their Bight cen
ter in the constellation Leo, limiting tbc
area to tbc immediate vicinity of Kcgjlas in
the neck of the lion. Others assign the ra
diant point to the constellation Orion.
The theory most generally accepted in ac
counting for the regular recurrence of mete
oric showers, ii that an unusual aggregation
of asteroids exists in tbc plane which is
reached by the earth at that point of its or
bit, and through which the earth is scleral
hours in rafting, although observations have
not been sufficiently numerous to establish
the exact period ol the earth's arrival at this
part ol its orbit.
In regard to this expected ''sUr-ibowcr,''
Prof. atson, Professor of Astronomy and
Director of tbc Observatory of the Univer
sity of Michigan, in a note received by us
from him, remarks . ' It is not considered
by any means certain that there will ho ao
extraordinary meteoric disjilay on the morn
ing of the Uth of November. It is simply
probable, since the period is probably very
nearly 33 years."

Tae November Klcclious.
The cjicf interest of Tuesday's elections
centred around the State oi New York and
tbc Cuiigreional electiona in eleven other
State, anJ the results arc such that the
trne I'nion mtn of the Country may well
thank Go J md take fresh courage. They
are in brivl , a republican success in New
York, the empire State being saved by the
intelligence and patriotism of her yeomanry,
as opposed to the ignorance and depravity
which arc concentrated in the groat metro
polis. and which make it a political plague
spot en the face of the land. It is saved,
however, as by fire, Gst. Fen ton being
elected by but 5000 majjrity, or less than
one nor cent if the total vote. Ilia major! ty
in 1SG1 w;.s S 307. Tbc democratic major,
iiy of New York city, swelled by the return
of 0,000 or 7,000 rebels, who have been
serving in the rebel army, reaches tbc stu
pendous figure of 40,000. Tbc Congression
al tote of New York will stand as before, 21
republicans to 10 democrats. Col. Cannon
who had a hopeless fi'bt in the Sth District,
is defeated by James Iirooks, democrat and
editor of the A'. V. Eipreu ; and to the list
of shining demccratic lights on the floor of
Congress is added John Momsscy, pugilist
and professional gambler, and " Fernandy
in Maryland the " Hnecrvativc3 or
allied Democrats and Johnson men, bare
carried tbc State Legislature a result
which will send Gov. Swann to the U.S.
Senate, in place of Senator Cresswcll.
Tbc rest appears to be almost unbroken
repuoucan success, wntrcrer euccese was
expected. Massachusetts gives a republican
majority ranking with those or Vermont
and Maine, ud from Illinois, Wisconsin,
Minnesota, and every Western State beard
from, come news of heavy republican gains.
These elections would give a clear repub
lican majority in a full House, in which all
tbc States were represented, end there are
other loyal State elections still to be held,
which will increase that majority. The
character of the Fortieth Congress is there
fore fully determined.
The Ilcsult In the Third DMrfct.
ELECTION OF HON. W. a SMITH.
Wc congratulate the republicans of the
Third district and honest men everywhere,
on the triumphant election of a worthy, hon
est end able republican to CoDgrcss in the
Third district of Vermont.
The canvass, from first to last, ba6 been
unlike any ever known in this State, bearing
on ptrstnal questions more exclusively, and
unequalled both in bitterness of personal
feeling, and in expenditures of money and
personal effort. It was a contest not be
tween two parliM.but inside of the republican
party. It was on the one part an attempt
almost hopeless were it not that Truth
and Providence were on that side to send
back to private life a Congressman who had
prostituted his position to unworthy ends,
TUtit who by various artificies had gained the
confidence of tbc majority of the party, who
bad on bis side all the appliances ol tarty
iBaebincry'with tbc exception of the unbought
and unbuyablc Press of the district, and
who represented and was supported by a
powerful "ring' of political managers. On
tbc other part it was tbc attempt of the
Congressman to retain bis office, by the un
scrupulous use oi such machinery and a
lavi-h outlay of money, never before known
and we trust never again to ba tccn in Ver
mont. The result shows what can be ac
complished by an honest purpose, carried
into steady, etraightforwatd, unflinching
Wc need not jevicw today the shifting
phases oi flic contest. No one concerned in
it has fmd Ins own way throughout. Kaeh
side has had its surprises and its disappoint
ments. Hut wc have tbe right to note tho
fact that every good purpose aimed at by us,
wben the Frei Pkbss opened tbe fight, has
been accomplished. Mr. Purtus Hixtrr lias
been defeated and disgraced. The King lias
been broken and destroyed. The miferahlo
system of mass nominating conventions is
thoroughly ended. And the district will be
represented by a gentleman, who, though
not tho first choice of many, is one to whom
no one denies high personal worth, eminent
purity of life and purpose, and abundant
qualifications of education and individual
capacity. Wc have no fears that his
course in Cungress will not fully justify
the expectations of bis friends, or that he
will fail to labor heartily and successfully
for the true welfare, unity and harmony of
tbe party and the State. To such unity and
harmony let all now contribute by lorgetting
pat animosities, and studying " the things
that make for peace ;" and the final result
will be a higher standard of official morality
in our representatives, closer scrutiny ol tbe
character of candidates, and purer polities
in our district and State, for miny a year to
in silence sometime ; but finding that the mob
would nut he stilted, be undertook to steak,
only to be drowned by cries oi "spoons,'
"spoons, "go home," ic. At one time be
was bit in the stomach by an apple thrown
by some one in the crowd. This created a
good deal of eieitcme nt on the platform, but
when (Ism nil Iiutler took the fruit in his
hand nnJ o wily commenced enling it, and
bowed to hi' antagonist as though he bad
just Kn the recipient of n favor instead of
an insult, ho brought the house down, and
fur a moment there was an evidence of better
feeling in the crowd Itut it was only for a
moment. Again the crowd broke forth in
cheers for Hoffman and groans for Batter.
Five minutes probably elapsed, during which
time (ion. Iiutler continued eating his apple
and waiting for an apporiunity to he beard.
Finally, atnUotiing tbc attempt to make a
formal speech, he pitched int.) the mob, as
follows. He said .
If there was any argument in ftvor of d s
Itie rule and against the rule of the majority,
in a rcpubliaan country, it was such scenes as
these. A few more such would determine the
great National Republican Union party to see
that theie is peace in New York in every elec
tion, as there was in lPfti. The good people of
the State of Aew lork will see to it
that their voice in ibe election is not stifled
by the acts of a New York mob. These men
will not be permitted to triumph over free
speech and free discuision. He charged that
Southern refugees were endeavoring to intro
duce eparchy and confusion. l.vervwherc
tbe Republican party prevails tbc right of ittt
speech is new sacred, in ivcw lork city mob
ocracy is Itiumuhant. If such are the teach
iocs of Democracy, the sooner such a liemoc-
racT is cleaned out the better. He concluded
' The nieu who are now i-!ling and hoolio,
arc the men who, in IN) kiiu-d ncgru children

not look the men hi the face. When tbe power

The City Clerk has presented to me for my
approval a resolution pasted by you Uct,-,

' Jlnoloed, by tbe City Council of ibe City
of Burlington, as follows : That the plan for

I understand that the words " this Board,"
as assd in the ltseoratwn, refer to tbe City
Cuuncil. ami not to the Board of Aliermen
alone, and Ibis construction is necessary to give
proper cnect to the resolution. But it seems to
me that the passage of this resolution was
premature. The condition annexed to it
shows that the resolution ought not to
hive been passed ; that you were not
prepared to adopt the plin rccoiaiucnlei by Mr.
Linsley ; and until satisfactory evidence is fur

his estimate, I judge from the tenor of the reso

have employed learned engineers to report suit

Wc may adopt any of their plans; but I trust
that none will be adopted which shall cot fiat
have received the unbiased and thorough consid
eration of the City Council.
The subject is one of sufficient importance to
warrant us in taking all the time nerary to
investigate it thoroughly And as i be resolution
referred to contains a confession nn your part,
that you require more evidence before you are
ready to adopt the proposed plan uncondition

resorting to any unusual course in this matter, I
feel it my duty to return the rcolutiou without

above all that It may be settled rijkt. There is
certainly great danger that it uuy finally be

faithfully to do our whole duty in Ibis matter; ,
and I trust it, returning lo tbe consideration of
this subject, your Board will soon be able to
agree upon a plan which will commend itself to
all tsjose who have a proper regard fur the fu
